Career Work for Network Engineers, Computer Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Help Technicians

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with Cisco CCIE or CCNP credentials; security professionals who have CISA or comparable security credentials; and advanced system design consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, high uptime, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also seeks employees who can work on our staff of desktop support technicians and remote troubleshooting experts. In addition, We are looking for experienced managers who can operate effectively in our high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a team of talented and motivated consultants, delivering attentive customer care, and following a competitive results-focused pricing structure, Progent has been able to increase our customer list rapidly while delivering consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge database, and a team strategy for problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer list.

For a network consultant with troubleshooting expertise, joining Progent or working for our clients can enhance your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented consultants. Our commitment to providing information technology expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to work intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

We are hiring consultants that have verifiable credentials in their technical expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For security, you should have earned you CISSP, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other top security certifications. Naturally, we are familiar with "paper experts". Still, simply because a certificate does not ensure expertise is no reason for not having one. If you know your field, then the majority of those tests should pose no challenge. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then clients expect certifications. Progent can broadcast your skills, but you should have a baseline of certifications for us to work with. In case you are strongly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can sympathize with and respect your position, but you are probably not a good candidate.

Progent makes good on this promise by attracting the top professional talent for you to operate with, offering a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using proprietary application tools to enable the maximum quality of support, and by optimizing proven business structures for attracting and retaining customers.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from ordinary network support firms is the excellence of our consultants.

Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Macintosh, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we engage professionals who can enable you to be effective on larger projects by combining the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office infrastructure enables seamless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for in-person customer work is determined by your schedule, not ours. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's support services can be done off-site, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is geared towards responding quickly and efficiently to client requirements via information sharing and cooperative problem solving. Although Progent's engineers operate with a great deal of independence, dispatching is centralized, customer problems and resolutions are meticulously monitored, recorded, and archived for convenient retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is published to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client satisfaction is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of cooperation through periodic team conferences and regular company-wide events.

The majority of our team is situated throughout Northern California, but we are attracting a quickly growing team of network experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic obstacles that limit the productivity of traditional business structures. We complete the package by offering a full employee care plan to promote the physical health and financial security of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent.

Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also a strong sales operation.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a steady stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients rely on a consultant to perform the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or entrenched problems, and tricky upgrades are the basis for our services daily. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is all too typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning excited about the challenges ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by establishing strong client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented company through and through. If you do not offer excellent communications skills or enjoy working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood a poor match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
